Men’s fashion can never be grouped into 1 overall genre because there are different subgenres of fashion. But one segment of men’s fashion that readily thrives is streetwear.
As the rise of “the creative” brings a deeper look into the importance of the arts, fashion becomes the staunch expresser of personality. Colors can be bold, and sneakers can be chunky.
A more recent drop coming soon is the Yeezy Boost 700 V2 in “Geode” set to drop on the 23rd of this month. While we remember fans of Jordans as a much more niche market of sports lovers. Kanye seems to have expanded that market to include fans of music, where you don’t have to be athletic or even into sports to get into sneaker fads. Yeezy’s seem to have become the new Jordans as sneakerheads and men’s fashion enthusiasts await the new colorways with anticipation.
Another drop coming for men’s fashion is Colmar A.G.E. by Shayne Oliver. Shayne Oliver‘s artistic direction is the prime example of streetwear in today’s age of the creative. He was interviewed by none other than Kanye himself who praised Oliver‘s work in the industry. Oliver is credited to have “perfected the union of streetwear and high fashion” which brings men’s fashion to the forefront of what’s trending. This Advanced Garment Exploration (A.G.E.) drop features luxury outerwear at prices ranging from $170 to $1575.
Men’s fashion trends are clearly highly influenced by black men who used their creativity in a way in which they were able to capitalize on a market that wasn’t in the media too often. This gave rise to many other designers such as, Jeremy Scott. When men began caring about how they expressed their mood/personality through clothing, men’s fashion became the powerhouse that it is today.
